Where Trafalgar Square
Contact Graham Smith

More than a thousand people will be protesting as Charles's parade comes up the Mall, through Trafalgar Square and down to Westminster Abbey.


Trafalgar Square, near Charles I statue at the top end of Whitehall.


The Republic team will be there from 6am. We're encouraging as many people as possible to get there for 8am, but keep on turning up throughout the morning!

We want the biggest protest possible by time Charles comes back from the Abbey sometime around 1pm.

What to bring

We'll be there a while, so bring snacks and water. We'll have lots of placards, but feel free to bring your own. If you do bring your own try to make it yellow if you can!

How to get there

We've assessed the crowds at previous royal events and believe it will be fairly easy to reach the protest throughout the morning. The best routes will be along the Strand from Charing Cross station, Cockspur Street from Piccadilly Square or Northumberland Avenue from Embankment tube station. The protest will be centred around the roundabout where the Charles I statue is.

Wear yellow!

We want to create a sea of yellow. We will be bringing lots of placards, but you can bring your own too (make them yellow!) and we're asking everyone to wear yellow on the day.
